Frequently Asked Questions
Will this camera fit non-technical people?
Used in its basic automatic setting, it is very easy to use. You will need to remove the battery to charge it, which I find inconvenient, but not difficult to do. This camera is small, so you might want to make sure she can handle it easily.
What is the lag time between shots for this camera? I'm looking for a small, compact camera that takes "quick" pictures!
Not sure officially but it's fast! Really need to use the beat fastest memory card u can get to make sure pix are saved fast....the card makes a big difference
Can you take one pic after another quickly or does it take a long time to be ready (depending on resolution, of course)?
You can set it to burst mode 10 frames per second. Good to have a class 10 SDHC card to, will speed up time between shots (image capture to memory).
